Here's my guide of where (and where not) to go.
Note that each and every club/night listed here have all had the pleasure of my custom! Aren't they lucky?
Despite any comment on this page, I do NOT suggest any under age people should go to nightclubs. It's illegal!
|Club Name||Night||Door Policy||Drinks||Music||Comments|
|Capitol, Matilda St, Sheffield||Tuesday (Student)||10 - 2:30, Free, No dress code||£1 Pint||House/garage||Enjoyable and cheap night out. Has a tense sort of atmosphere that some dislike. Also has a chill out area outside.|
|Club Uropa, Eyre St, Sheffield||Tuesday (Student)||10 - 2, £2/£3, No dress code||£1.20 Carling, £1.50 all others||House/garage||Another good Tuesday night out, in one of Sheffield's smaller clubs. Always busy. Cheaper admission before 11pm.|
|Thursday||10 - 2, £1, No dress code||£1 Pint, £1 Spirit/Mixer, £0.80 Pils||70s/80s||Enjoyable night of old music. Surprisingly the club isn't full of old people!!!|
|Friday||10 - 2, £3/£5, 20+(I think) No jeans/trainers||£2.30 a pint||House/Dance||Good, but a little expensive night out. Gets really full, therefore just as busy as the rest of the week|
|The Roxy, Arundel Gate, Sheffield||Saturday||9:30 - 2, £3.50/£4.50, No jeans/trainers||£2:20 Pint, £2.60 Pils, £1 Carlsberg||Mainstream||Roxy's is alright when you are under age! When you are old enough it suddenly loses it's appeal. Its a cheezy club, therefore dodgy music, crap DJ, mixture of young and old punters (About 16-35!).|
|The Zone, King Edwards St, Nottingham||Friday (Student)||10 - 2:30, £1/£2, No dress code||£1.60 Pint, other specials||Dance/Mainstream||Nice to see a club doing a student night at the weekend! Enjoyable.|
|Saturday||10 - 2:30, Free/£2/£3, No dress code||£1.80 Pint, £1 Vodka, other specials||Indie/Britpop||Very enjoyable night. Good music, good prices, good atmosphere. Check out the very comfy massive sofa type things at the back. Picture of Homer Simpson next to the Gents goes down a treat! Recommended! Nice to see a club selling pints for less than £2 at the weekend!|
|Pulse, Arena Leisure Park, Sheffield||Wednesday (Student)||10 - 2, £3, No dress code||£1 pint||Dance / Mainstream||Toppermost student night, with free beer before 11:30ish. Yes, that's right, all pints are absolutely FREE! That's FREE! As in zero pence! Free bus to/from Hallam union. Just a shame to see Pulse going slightly cheesy, but then again, it is student night.|
|Friday||10 - 2:30, £4/£5, No jeans/trainers||£2 Pint, £1.70 Budweiser||House/Garage||Good night out in large out of town club. Always busy. Plus points include the laser displays, and the drinking water tap in the toilets(!), which I have since found doesn't work. Oh dear.|
|Rock City, Talbot St, Nottingham||Thursday (Student)||8:30 - 2, £2/£3, No dress code||Can't Remember!||Rock/Indie||Mixture of soft rock, hard rock and indie. Large club. Downstairs is for goths/rockers only. Beware. The upstairs bit is a bit more mainstream and studenty.|
|Ritzy, Parliament St, Nottingham||Tuesday (Student)||10 - 2, Free/£1, No dress code||£1.50 Pint||Mainstream||Right, Ritzys. Nottinghams biggest cheezy nightclub. This is an experience. A bad experience. At the start of term, it gets too full and too hot and is hard to move around with long queues for bar and toilets. As the term goes on, it doesn't get quite as busy, making it more bearable and easier to get served. Beware of the Take That 3/4/5 in a row. Also, this is the only club I've ever heard play a Chesney Hawkes record. Oh dear! Finally, a word of warning - I think they tamper witt the beer, here. Whenever I've been, I've always had a greater hangover than what I expect, considering the amount of beer I drink.|
|The Leadmill, Leadmill Rd, Sheffield||Friday (Rise) (Cheers Steve!)||10 - 4, £9/£11, No dress code (I think)||£2.20 Pint||House/Garage||The Leadmill's big night, with big name DJs, and big door price to match. Seems a little weird at first, but easy to settle into. Good atmosphere. Expensive but good night out. 2 rooms. Bar hard to locate at first :-)|
|Beatroot, Broadway, Nottingham||Friday||10-2, £3.50/£4.50, No dress code, Membership required||£2.20 Pint, £2.80 Red Stripe||Indie (Room 1)/ Jazz (Room 2)||A good industrial(?) themed club which is a bit cold(???????) but has good atmosphere. Also comes with an unfortunately expensive bar.|
|Essance, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham||Thursday||10-2, £2.50/£3||£2.30 Pint, £1.50 Becks||House/Garage||Big club, always full. Expensive bar.|
|The Voodoo Lounge, Huntingdon Street, Nottingham||Thursday||10-2, £1, No dress code||All drinks £1!||Mainstream Dance||New, small club, but really quite busy. Must be because of the cheap drinks prices. Nice comfy seating upstairs.|
|MGM,Greyfriar Gate, Notingham||Wednesday (Student)||9:30-2, £2, No dress code||£1 pint before midnight - more after.||Mainstream||MGM - A Ritzys wannabe if ever I saw one. Another cheezy club. Beware of extremely long queing times at the bar (up to 20 minutes!?!?????).|
